An easy Oxford amble

Book 1 Walk 13, Oxford circular

Length 15.2km (9.4m); toughness 1/10. completely flat

Trains: 09.34 London Paddington (Slough 09.54) arrives at Oxford 11.00

Return trains: xx:09 direct slow stopping trains to London
                       xx:51 direct faster trains to London
                       xx:16 fast trains to Reading where you change for a fast train to London

I’m taking a bit of a risk with this Book 1 walk as it has not been done for almost 3 years and has rather fallen out of favour. It was originally designed as an easy, flat  walk for visitors to London and a chance to amble around Oxford colleges.

However the route is redolent with history and interest and Oxford should be buzzing with Xmas shoppers and “end of term” students. (You may care to do a bit of Xmas shopping yourself!) You can do the college tours if you wish but you may prefer to amble round the city centre and take refreshments at one of the many bijou cafes or pubs.


The walk has been rewritten and up-dated so don’t use the book but see here for more information about the walk, refreshment options, and detailed walk directions.

Yes well behaved dogs are welcome on these walks. We've had a few canine friends along in the past.
